Actress Gabrielle Union refuses to stand for people calling out her parenting choices on social media because she is determined to raise her child in her own way.
The star welcomed daughter Kaavia with husband Dwyane Wade via a surrogate in November (18), but she has received constant criticism from commenters, who have found fault with some of the aspects of her life as a mum that she has shared online.
The 46-year-old admits her openness with her personal life has left her vulnerable to opinions she doesn’t appreciate.
“I had to hit the mummy shamers day one,” she tells People magazine. “I’m going to do it my way. I’m sure I’m going to make all kinds of mistakes and when I ask for help, which I will, I would love to hear all y’all’s advice. Everybody has been on my journey of pain and anguish and trauma, and I owe it to myself to enjoy every second of my joy.”
